understand the frustration of the senators from virginia and their inability to obtain a more complete rationale and plan for the pentagon's proposed actions. the secretaries in tend to reduce duplication, overhead, and excess in the department of defense is commendable, but his action should be supported by an open process, which includes detailed analysis and full consideration of opposing views. we again thank witnesses for their presence here this morning. we look forward to their testimony, and i call upon senator mccain. >> thank you. i thank the distinguished witnesses for being here this morning and their service to the nation. secretary gates announced a series of initiatives in august to improve the inefficiency of the department of defense. as part of this initiative, he also passed dr. carter to improve the department's buying power through a plate it acquires critical goods and services in order to stop runaway costs, growth, and program delays. we look forward to hearing from dr. carter of the initial procesprogress he is making. i'd in both these initiatives are coming a

you look at those numbers in virginia, when you look at them in new jersey, when you look at them in, all states obama carried by his national average or better, you just do the math turning whiter. and i think the question for the future is that the people who are like the -- are the republicans if they get a majority in the house, if they get a strong bargaining position in the senate, are they prepared to advance and perhaps achieve public policies that are going to work as public policy and that are going to commit voter ovations in subsequent elections. i think that's an open question. if they of. it's field politics are not assured of success. i do think however that in more than any other time i've been following polics, voters are open to a vast cut back in the size and scope of government in a way that they haven't had in most past years. they are aware that the obama mocrats have hugely increased it. minority leader john peters called the other day to say let's go back to 2008 spending levels. it's actually at the intelligence staf in the right direction because most people

. had he been in the eastern division of virginia and convicted of those same offenses, i suspect he could be doing 20 to life. the sentence would have been completely different. it's ironic when you look at the outcome of the few cases that have been through the military system and compare them to the outcomes in our court. i have many, many defendant who are serving many sentences in cases that didn't involve actual violence other than they were shooting r.p.g.s or other dangerous weapons over in pakistan. it's interesting when you think about it. i think the perception of the two systems have become warped. no terrorism defendant in the modern times ever got a death sentence either. the embassy bombing there's not been that when he's fighting against the tide. >> someone acquited a trial a civilian or military trial could still be detain on a military rationale. there are supreme court precedents that say there's no due process for detaining someone after acquital. if there's an independent bases for danger or something like that. i don't believe in any of those cases the executiv

. the gentleman from new jersey. mr. pallone: i yield to my friend from virginia, mr. moran, for as much time as he may consume. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. mr. moran: i thank my good friend from new jersey for yielding me the time as well as his friendship as well as the distinguished gentleman from kentucky, mr. whitfield. and i want to recognize mr. inslee for introducing this legislation. we share a deep concern about the use of medications which are not being safely returned to drugstores because of the regulatory difficulties and in many cases you have to have a police officer there overseeing the return of the drugs this will get over those restrictions and allow a process to happen which is terribly important because we should all know that drug abuse is not limited to street corner illegal drug purchases. that, in fact, the abuse of prescription drugs is a large part of america's drug problem. particularly among young people. one study has shown that in the last decade, nonmedical use of prescription drugs increased by almost 100%. among adolescents between

in illinois, west virginia and delaware will take office more or less immediately after votes are canvased and certified and they'll be serving in the lame-duck session. i believe that voters in those states will render a very clear judgment on this lame duck agenda by sending additional reinforcements for our side of the aisle. the campaign strategy of our friends on the other side of the aisle is crystal clear. they are not running on their legislative accomplishments because it's largely unpopular. and they are worried that voters will hold them accountable for the failure of those policies to meet their own stated goals. so they're running campaigns against the american people, some of whom are participating in the political process for the first time. and i'm talking about the tea party movement. calling some of these participants in the process guaranteed by the first amendment of the constitution to redress their government on their grievances and they're deemonizing members of the tea party -- demonizing members of the tea party movement. and president obama has engaged in class wa

. this is wre democrats did well in the last two cycles. we saw this in northern virginia, suburbs outside philadelphia, outside of las vegas and phoenix, even, this is where democrats we able to win over voters with a common sense kind of agenda, practic approach to making the middle- class better. what we found is a lot of residents there are falling on tough times and switching their loyalties. they are not necessarily tea party people, so they are not angry -- i talked to about two dozen residents of the subdivision who were political independents, and they did not say anything hateful about the president or that they were voting the tea party but they were critical of the president. it's good he said they were not tea party identifiers. -- host: yu said that they are concerned about everyday issues that affect their lives. how important of the suburbs or this area of this country -- not urban america or rural america, more of a middle-class enclave. guest: it is critical for both parties. it is where the growth is. not necessarily the closed in suburbs that have been established for a

to do that? i do not know that we do. host: rob on the republican line. arlington, virginia. caller: i want to start with a brief note of fairness for this sitting president, president barack obama. he did say afghanistan was the good war, he did say that on the campaign trail. for him to receive criticism about going back on a promise is wrong. he said he wanted to leave iraq and to work in afghanistan, which is what he is doing. as i see it, one of the few promis he kept. there were a lot of attacks since president obama became president in the green zone. there were eighin the month of june or something and the media has remained silent on that. if george bush were still president, they would be airing not constantly. it would be on all the front pages across the country. when you see an uptick of violence in the green zone, it may not be a good time to pull aout. it seems like amateur hour here. you could take all of the money spent, look at all the projects that have been completed -- massive amount of projects -- add it all up and it is about $35 billion. this is straight from th
